The Jellybean Jumper is inspired by the Myra Slouch Hat. While looking for alternative yarns for the Myra Slouch Hat I couldn’t help but notice how beautiful the stitch looked when I worked in the round. I decided to continue increasing the rounds until I had a yoke; it was all downhill from there! I love the bean stitch for its simplicity, yet it has a touch of elegance when applied as a yoke with the right companion stitch to emphasize the bean stitch’s texture. Myra is a funky hat, but the Jellybean jumper is toned down and a great staple for any fall/winter closet. The bottom of the sweater is worked in a yarn under single crochet. When working a yarn under single crochet in the round you get a “x” effect that is so nice and really fills in the single crochet stitch.
Yarn #3 DK, I used Whims Merino Crochet Yarn; 182/ 166m; 50% Superwash Merino and 50% Nylon.
Hook(s): 4mm or hook to obtain gauge
Stitch Markers at least 5; choose one color for sm1 and sm2, another color for sm3 and sm4, and a different color for a stitch marker to track the beginning of each row/ round. Sm1 and sm2 will mark one armhole, sm3 and sm4 will mark the second armhole. Using different color stitch markers for each side will help you when working the arms.
Looks like you haven't made a choice yet.
